Old Hall Campden Toast Rack. 4 Slice

In the ‘bright’ shiny stainless steel finish.

The Campden range was designed by British designer Robert Welch in 1957.

This version does not say ‘designed by R Welch’ on its base, because it's in Old Hall’s more traditional shiny finish (which they called 'Bright'), rather than Welch’s preferred satin finish which was the height of modernism in the late 1950s.

These days both shiny and brushed steel finishes are popular, so it's just a matter of which one you prefer.

Has 'Olde Hall, Made in England' etched into its base.

Produced until 1982 by high end British Mid Century homewares manufacturer, Old Hall. Stylish modernist design.

19cm long, 6cm wide and 7cm high.

Very good vintage condition with only minor signs of age.

The Campden toast rack was awarded a prestigious Design Council award in 1957 for its “elegant and ingenious construction”. The award was presented by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - google to see a wonderful photo of Robert Welch with Prince Philip.
________________________________________

Robert Welch was an English designer and silversmith who studied at the Royal College of Art. He was very influenced by Scandinavian design, having visited Scandinavia extensively including studying in Stockholm. He also worked with Norwegian and Danish silversmiths and other Scandinavian designers.

After graduating he set up his own studio in Chipping Campden in the South West of England in 1955 and soon after designed the Campden range named after his studio’s location. The toast rack in the Campden range won a British Design Council award.

He went on to collaborate with / be commissioned by a range of prestigious and influential companies and individuals including Prince Phillip, Danish steel homewares producer Lauffer (who produced steel products for Dansk Designs and Stelton), Poole Pottery and Royal Doulton. His children continue to produce products in the same studios to this day.
